Browns Coach Pat Shurmur Leaning Toward Keeping Colt McCoy As His Backup QB?

Browns coach Pat Shurmur sounds like he's leaning toward keeping quarterback Colt McCoy as his backup. Before practice on Sunday, he praised McCoy effusively -- the most positive comments he's made about him all preseason.

"I think he's done an outstanding job here in training camp,'' said Shurmur. "I'm very pleased with where he's at. I gained an even greater appreciation of him, the way he's competed, the way he's handled the situation, let's just call it that. I'm very impressed with how he's doing. I think that's good for our team. He understands one of the primary things you need to understand as a backup at this point -- to be ready to play -- because you're ankle injury from being in there, and he's been on both sides of that coin and so he understands it.''

Working with the second-team offense against the Eagles' backups, McCoy earned a stellar 138.0 rating and orchestrated a 15-play 78-yard TD drive in the third and fourth quarters. It ended with a 3-yard TD pass to tight end Evan Moore.
